Hatters boss Nathan Jones said he was pleased to put his poor record against Stevenage to bed as his side ran out 7-1 winners against Boro at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

Summer signing Luke Berry netted a hat-trick, whilst Danny Hylton bagged a brace before James Justin and Luke Gambin added to the haul late on.
The result leaves the Town in third, with a goal difference of plus 19, eight better than any other side in Sky Bet League Two.

Jones felt his side are a completely different outfit to what they were last season, as he said: "I said in my press conference on Thursday we are a different team now [to last year].

"We are a different group – we are stronger in all areas. It could have been more. Their keeper made some good saves and we missed a few good chances in the second half. I am not going to be too presumptuous in terms of that, but I thought we were excellent.

"Stevenage were only three points behind, so to put in that kind of performance and to win by that margin is wonderful and it was very emphatic.

"We've had a couple [of fantastic performances]. We had the 8-2 against Yeovil and that one was as good if not better in terms of the all-round performance.

"Apart from a lapse of concentration just before half-time that could have been really tricky, because it would have changed their team talk and it certainly changed mine a little bit.

"But it was important we came out and got the next goal, because I said I would be happy for that to finish 5-1. But to score two late goals obviously adds to the goal difference, but it was good to see people getting on the score sheet."
